Florence Mall’s Back-to-School is Out of This World


Is it already time for back to school? How depressing – we haven’t had a lick of summer yet up here in the Pacific northwest. But time waits for no man, and sure enough, the school year is just a little over a month away.

General Growth Properties is bringing back its Shop Til You Rock promotion for the second year running. It’s a great time for the older back-to-school set, with live performances by some of today‚Äôs hottest bands, exclusive activities and special offers and giveaways. There’s even a chance to win shopping sprees and gaming systems.

But for the younger set, who probably aren’t just handed credit cards and a list of careful shopping instructions, Florence Mall and other GGP centers are offering a second program: Family Recess is a traveling event that kicks off back-to-school fun with family-friendly activities, like Putt for Prizes, an Airbrush Fun Station and Just Dance 2 and Just Dance Kids. Families that spend more $150 during Family Recess will also take home a $20 center gift card and a one-year subscription to Family Circle or Parents magazine as long as supplies last.

Shoppers also have the chance to win a great family vacation: a trip for four to the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Orlando, Florida. With the end of the U.S. shuttle program and the anniversary of the moon landing all happening right now, there couldn’t be a better time to celebrate space. The package includes admission, a guided tour, Lunch with an Astronaut, goodies and hotel accommodation.
